Boston Celtics

Boston Celtics' Jaylen Brown is comfortable in the second unit, but should he start again?


TORONTO -- In early December, as Boston wing Jaylen Brown prepped for a return to action after a nasty fall two weeks prior, the Celtics were cruising through their first truly positive stretch of the season.


Brown, who started the year ice cold with the starters, talked about the possibility of joining the second unit.


Now the Celtics are scuffling again, and Marcus Morris’ shooting slump has made him an easy target in the starting lineup.


Even Stevens said not enough was made of how the injury affected his game (in fairness, Brown had no interest in talking about it when asked).


Still, Celtics assistant coach Micah Shrewsberry couldn’t help but notice Brown struggling to do simple basketball things like shooting a normal jump shot or catching a pass.


He jumped in with Hayward, Semi Ojeleye and Celtics assistant Scott Morrison to get a better feel for reads in the second unit.
